      First of all: THANKS a lot for this interview!! Man, it really contains a lot of useful information!

      Around minute 9 you mentioned something, that struck me, Melissa! You said that you had dark ("black") eyeshadows. Since I have this exact problem for almost a year now and am struggeling to get them away, I am really interested, how you started / continued your healing. In the interview, you mentioned bone broth. Is there something else where you noticed a major shift in your body?

      I changed from unhealthy - and vegan - lifestyle, to - I hope - healthy lifestyle, including all foods (meat, greens, ...) except gluten (caught a sensitivity ... :( ) - since that I feel a lot better, but still not up to 100% again. And especially do I still look completely "demolished" like I haven't slept for the last weeks. (And I actually do sleep a lot.)

      Thanks again!

        Hi Valery,

        I can totally relate.

        I did exactly what I teach in my online program Get Your Glow On. This is exactly how I healed myself, got happy and healthy. You can get it out here

        Let me know how you go.

      Hey Melissa,
      thank you so much for your beautiful posts.
      I'm vegan though but not a raw-vegan.
      And actually it is amazing. Everyone has to find his diet that works for him personally, right?
      And I would like to ask you again: Do you believe that everything happens for a reason?
      And what can you do when you start overthinking everything?
      I know I'm asking a lot.
      Thank you so much,
      Love and light

        And one more question: Is fruit sugar good for you?

        • Melissa Ambrosini
          December 18, 2014

          In my personal opinion sugar is sugar and our body doesn't know the difference between sugar from an apple and sugar from a sweet. The body registers it as sugar. I feel so much better when I stay away from fruit sugar but will occasionally eat berries and my body responds great to them.

          Does that help hun?

      • Melissa Ambrosini
        December 18, 2014

        Hey Antonia,

        Yes darling I do believe everything happens for a reason. The Universe isn't against us it want's us to choose love, be happy and live life and sometimes we need to have experiences to remind us to choose love instead of fear.

        When you overthink things honey the best thing to do is come back to the present moment. Do one of my meditations to bring you back into your body and out of your hear. This always works for me ;)

        I hope that helps sweetie pie.

          Thank you so much. This year I discovered your website and it is full of positive energy. I love reading your kind words and your inspiring articles. I really start manifesting love over fear and asking myself what love would do. Thank you for being by my side.
          Next questions :): Do you avoid eating fruits? What do you eat for breakfast instead? Green juice? And your bliss balls are with dates as well, aren't they? Is that something youonly eat occasionally? You know, sometimes I need other people to say that an accomplishment is great. Or I want them to say that everything is going to be allright. How can I be so shure of it that I don't need other people to confirm it.
          When is your second book coming out? Hopefully as a paperback version avaible on Amazon, as I am from Europe?
          I think the next year is going to be amazing. Are you going to make a vision board?
          Best wishes,
          Antonia

          December 19, 2014

          Hey Antonia,

          Thank you for all your questions. I will answer them below:

          Do you avoid eating fruits? Yes, I eat berries occasionally which my body agree with.

          What do you eat for breakfast instead? I have what I call a fatty latte which is ghee, coconut oil, vanilla, stevia, hot water (recipe is coming soon).

          Green juice? Sometimes I do green juice in the warmer months.

          And your bliss balls are with dates as well, aren’t they? Is that something you only eat occasionally? I used to eat dates all the time when I first made those recipes however I don't eat them that often any more as they give me the shakes.

          When is your second book coming out? It is coming out in January 2016. I can't wait to share it with you.

          Hopefully as a paperback version available on Amazon, as I am from Europe? Yep, it's a hard cover honey. You are going to love it.

          Are you going to make a vision board? Yes I will.

          I hope this helps honey.

          Remember to listen to yourself and your body. It always knows best.

          Hi Antonia,

          Trust yourself honey! You always know best more than anyone else. Tune in to yourself and listen to your intuition. You don't need other people to tell you anything. And to be honest no one knows you better than YOU!

          Sorry for bothering you with tons of questions I'm just very curious as you can see:)
          Have you read " Women who run with wolves"?
          What about agave?
          Are you going to 'publish' your vision board via pinterest as you did before? By the way I loved your last ones.
          Have you got any book recommendation on that 'sugar topic' despite Sarah Wilson's lovely 'I quit sugar'?
          And nature gave us everything we need, why did it give us fruits if they aren't healthy for us?
          Are there any fruit exeptions, which contain less sugar?

        • Melissa Ambrosini
          December 20, 2014

          Hey Antonia,

          Here are my answers below:

          Have you read ” Women who run with wolves”? No I haven't but it sounds great. I will add it to my list.

          What about agave? Avoid it at all cost. It is highly processed and I believe not good for us.

          Are you going to ‘publish’ your vision board via pinterest as you did before? Sure.

          Have you got any book recommendation on that ‘sugar topic’ despite Sarah Wilson’s lovely ‘I quit sugar’? Anything by David Gillespie is great.

          And nature gave us everything we need, why did it give us fruits if they aren’t healthy for us? Small amounts of low GI fruits (such as berries and green apples) are fine but our food has been domesticated and back when we were cave women we didn't have access to as many fruits as we do today. I personally think people are eating way to much fruit on a daily basis.

          Are there any fruit exeptions, which contain less sugar? Berries, green apples and kiwi's are great.

      I can't thank you enough for this video Melissa. When I quit sugar many years ago to clear my skin, my acne disappeared. 2 years ago I discovered raw desserts and adopted a mainly raw vegan diet, only my clear skin disappeared. It's only now as I sit here typing this with dark circles under my eyes, I realise why my skin isn't clear and why I am so dam tired. Thank you, Thank you Melissa! I just wish I could purchase the cookies in Australia :)

      It is so refreshing to hear people not be preaching raw/vegan diets! I love it! I work at a gym and see diets flow in and out and I am always trying to just tell people to really be in tune with their bodies and eat what makes them feel good- I am not perfect at this at all, and energy levels I am still struggling with- but thank you thank you for this video. I love it!
      At 27"00 ish Crosby said something after stevia? what is it??

        I don't fully understand that idea of lying to your body with sugars that aren't real sugars. Isn't it that when your body craves sugar and you have sweet teeth you should simply give your body carbohydrates...?

        • Melissa Ambrosini
          December 19, 2014

          Hi Letty,

          Which sugars are you referring to as not real sugars?

      • Jennifer Benson
        January 2, 2015

        Hey Crosby,
        LOVE LOVE LOVE what you are doing....just jumped on the Bulletproof train (trying desperately to recover from Hashimotos, Psoriasis and Leaky Gut). I can't eat meat (I just can't do it, haven't since I was 9yrs old and I'm 38!) and I just found out I have VERY toxic levels of Lead and Mercury so I am going to have Chelation so no more fish for me either! So my protein sources have now come down to the Pasture Eggs I get a my farmers market (Sherman Oaks, CA.) or Vital Farms Eggs from Whole Foods, Great Lakes Collagen and Great Lakes Gelatin and I'm going to try Bone Broth. I have a MASSIVE sweet tooth and already use Xylitol, Erythritol and Stevia and I would love to play around with Colostrum - do you have a brand that you use or recommend? I buy alot of the Body Ecology stuff and other medicinals at Grassroots Alchemy in WEHO and thought I might be able to get some there but would love to know where I can purchase some online (Longevity Warehouse?)....
        Thanks so much for any advice and thank you for providing such wonderful info!!!!

        • January 3, 2015

          Hey Jennifer,

          It sounds like you are local so it would be best to just email me at crosbytailor@gmail.com and we can figure everything out. Love GrassRoots! Those are my peeps! Email me and ill get you the best colostrum on Earth! thanks

      Hi there, thank you for the insightful and knowledgefull video. I am personally about 80% vegan and it works for me. It is a Health decision I made About 1,5yrs ago and NOT a trend I follow and I feel better then ever. I never used to eat a lot of meat, fish and dairy but I can feel a difference. As opposed to other opinions and experiences with this type of eating, I feel very good and happy, have enough energy (I also workout almost everyday), my skin is better than ever and I dont feel tired at all. I eat balanced blend of delicious cooked or fresh veggie meals, salads, fruits, nuts and seeds, legumes, quinoa, buckwheat and spelt and hemp protein powder, good fats , sometimes raw honey or xylitol, and occasional treat once in a while. I can say plant based diet sustains me and in my opinion and some research I have done I think all the animal products can be replaced.

      Thanks again

      Dear Melissa,

      Thank you so much for this video as well as for everything that you do.
      As English is not my native language, I did not quite understand the word that you pronounce on 7:57. Someone advised that you to take "organic something", and I didn't get this "something".
      Could you kindly clear up that word for me, please.
      Thank you!

      Interesting talk.
      I agree that everyone is individual and some of these diets can work for others.

      I do enjoy lots of raw food, but also have lots of cooked food and very low amounts of animal products.

      I did totally 100% cut out all sugar for 20 months. Like not even a carrot or capsicum or 1 piece of fruit. After 20 months I started adding in some low sugar berries and maybe a green apple once a week.

      It certainly made me become creative in the kitchen without the use of dates or bananas to call on. It made it hard to eat out anywhere and I think people thought I was a weirdo because I had to BYO every where I went.

      But taking out all sugar and including more fats like coconut oil, I have put on about 7 or more kilos in 1.5 years. I feel tired in no way healthier for it.

      Even when I was 98% raw I never feel for the whole raw cake thing. It did not make sense to me to eat all those nuts and sugars. It does not even appeal to me.

      I guess we just have to keep trying new ideas and find what works for us and be true to ourselves and not try follow trends.

      Thanks for this great interview.

      amazing information indeed! but I feel like "OMG ok what do I need to do right now?" and "ok what did he say? octane oil?? what are all these, where do I get them, How do I change my whole dessert philosophy?". I feel a bit lost to be honest.. ok so I have been having sugary breakfasts forever, so it will be honey and tahini on toast, or protein banana smoothie with cacao powder etc or banana porridge. so are all these wrong? Melissa it would be great if you could share with us an example of a meal plan for one day. just an example so that we can get the idea of what you guys are talking about in the video. that would be SO helpful !

      Melissa I also wanted to ask you what do you think about the 80/10/10 way of eating? so what about those people that eat loads of fruits and veggies ? they don't seem to complain about sugar overloads etc.... agh so many different things around the world!!!

      • Melissa Ambrosini
        December 23, 2014

        Hey Eleni,

        Personally I don't feel the 80/10/10 way of eating is supportive for me. My body thrives off loads of veggies and protein which is how an ancestors ate.
        Do what feels right for you and don't worry about what everyone else is doing hun. Tune in to your body and listen to it. It always knows best.

      Hi Melissa,
      I really loved this interview! I've been vegetarian/vegan for four years now and despite eating an extremely healthy diet, there hasn't been a day that I haven't woken up exhausted or needing a nap in the afternoon. It took watching this for me to finally realise that maybe it isn't the right diet for me anymore so thank you! I would really appreciate it if you could do a post on what you generally eat/drink in a day. There's a few already floating around on the internet but i'm not sure if that's changed at all as your diet has evolved. Thanks love x

      Both this video clip and the Bhava Ram one are inspirational. My dark eyes disappeared when I stopped eating wheAt. I wonder if wheat chews up iron. My body fell apart many years ago on a vegetarian diet. You are right. Vegetarians don't eat enough good saturated fat. Quality meats are the trick. I love my grass fed eye fillet and mince. Eating with love helps too. I think I have it right now.

    • December 22, 2014

      Hi Melissa! I know I'm late watching this, but OMG I love love love it! Definitely makes me wish I was still living in America so I could have the pleasure of trying his amazing treats. ;) I had experienced exactly what you were talking about when it comes to veganism etc. I am still adjusting to eating more meat, fat, cooked vegetables and cutting out all sugar. I have been really struggling to create dishes on a daily basis. I feel like I only have like 3 recipes under my belt now! All my old go-to's just don't work for me anymore. I would A) love to learn a LOT more about what he was chatting about when it comes to all the diff types of fats, when we should be eating them, what we should be eating instead and how to be a fat burner and B) Love to learn more recipes I can make. Do you have any book suggestions?

        There are two awesome books you could read to learn more about fats Primal Body Primal Mind and The Bulletproof Diet.

        Have a read and let me know what you think.

      Thanks so much to you and Crosby :)

    • December 23, 2014

      Mel - this video conversation is bang on. Everything is so aligned with the concepts of Ayurveda. I'm a vegetarian myself, but I eat (and make) ghee in rather generous amounts (who doesn't love butter that smells like shortbread!). High quality fats and dairy are encouraged for women in Ayurveda, to support the hormonal system first and foremost. Warm foods, and eating according to the season and weather are absolutely integral. All this green juicing/smoothie business is totally out the window!! Meat/eggs/dairy are all absolutely fine depending on each persons constitution, the season, etc.

      We need grounding and nourishment every day. Raw and vegan are excellent for cleansing (as you mentioned). We need to lead the way and re-educate the community to stop following trends, or diets that are only good for cleansing or 'detoxing', and focus more on anabolic living!

        Exactly honey.

    • January 2, 2015

      Oh I just love this!! I am still trying to get my poor tummy to recover after my few years of vegetarian/veganism/lots of raw food and smoothies. I haven't been to the beach for two years because I am so self conscious about my constantly bloated tummy!! Joint pain, arthritic pain (at 23!!), mucked up digestion, reproductive issues, NO energy! I can't tolerate SO many foods - nuts, seeds, coconut, avocado, dairy, wheat, anything fermented.. I have just now found an incredible naturopath who has put me on a remedy of supplements, bone broth, turmeric, cooked veggies and some protein (I haven't quite worked up to eating meat yet, but have started with fish and eggs). I am still quite scared about eating fats, but I am trying to get there!!

      I really enjoyed the part where you talked about your movement away from raw green juices/raw caked/smoothies/raw foods towards more cooked grounding foods. I was wondering if perhaps you could post a new "my day on a plate" that reflects this?? I love getting new meal ideas!! For example, what are a few difference things you eat for brekky and/or lunch and/or dinner etc.?

      Thanks for introducing us to such a wonderful person, who has made me feel normal! It is so easy to feel isolated from the "health" community when you double over in pain when you have green smoothies/raw crackers/raw cakes!

        Hey beautiful,

        So nice to hear from you.

        Here are some ideas for you:

        Breakfast:
        Eggs and cooked veggies
        A warm smoothie
        Bone broth
        Left over dinner from the night before

        Lunch and dinners:
        Protein and veggies
        Bone broths

        Are you having lots of bone broth honey? I have found that to be the BEST gut healer for me.

          I definitely have!! I have cooked up big batches and popped them in the freezer in individual portions so I have at least 1-3 cups per day :) Thanks beautiful Melissa xxxxxx

          PS Mel, just wondering: have you completely stopped eating nuts, coconut etc.? Just trying to have a shift towards gut healing and I am pretty sure I would feel better if I got rid of it all!

          I have also decided 2015 is the year of quitting sugar (finally, and completely) so I weaned myself down to just fruit and starchy veggies, and am starting (as of yesterday) a 21 day detox without starchy veggies, fruit, rice syrup etc. to completely get rid of my sugar cravings and help with my gut healing and the sugar craving friends in there…

          I have also cut out cacao, because I have found that whenever I eat even just a small amount I get heart palpitation, shakey, energy shifts and hunger that cannot be satiated (I think it's too much of a stimulant for me)

          Do you have any tips for really ridding yourself of sugar?

          Hey sweetie,

          I very occasionally eat nuts as they don't agree with me. I do however still have coconut oil (I love it!).

          As for sugar the best place to start is with the emotional attachment you have to it. Once you can let go of that it's a lot easier.

          Does that help honey?

      Hi, thanks for this video. I wasn't going to watch it at first but so glad I did. I became a pescetarian almost 2 years ago. Only recently have I been really tempted to eat meat and came really close and had really battled with my thoughts over this being bad, toxic and cancerous and how I wanted to raise children on no meat. This video has really given me something to think about, thank you! I have recently come across your websites and videos and I love the information you send through. Thank you it is greatly appreciated xo

      Wow, thank you so much Melissa. I was actually super surprised when I heard you say the most common issue was the vegan/raw vegan diet with woman, I didn't realise it was that popular. I am finally going to start my healing journey from this hell I have created for myself by attempting and convincing myself these raw diets are the answer. You are so so vibrant and have so much energy, I love the way you talk and express yourself.

      The only thing I can't get over though, is that humans are not meant to eat fruit. Whilst I didn't like fruit very much when I was attempting fruitarianism because I was eating so much, and I craved fats, it definitely seems like 'god' put fruit on the earth as one of the foods we are meant to eat.

        Hey Mia,

        Thank you so much for your kind words.

        I believe you can totally eat fruit. I do think however people are eating WAY too much and I would stay away from it if you have gut issues, candida or any other illness's or disease. If you are 100% in tip top shape and it doesn't effect you I think little bits of fruit is fine.

        Does that make sense?

        • Mia
          January 6, 2015

          Yes thank you so much for replying. I just have a few quick questions if you have time to answer them... I was wondering where you get the bones for the bone broth, do butchers sell the bones by themselves, or do you save them up from the meat you buy?

          I also wanted to know what kind of healthy pans you use for cooking?

          Also I cannot access 'get your glow on' either as someone mentioned above, it just says it is coming soon. Is it already out?

          Thanks so much x

          Hey beautiful Mia,

          I buy the organic bones from my butcher. They cost about $5 a bag. Just ask your butcher or call around but make sure they are from grass fed and grass finished animals. You don't want to get bones from unhealthy animals.

          The best (and healthiest) pans I have found are Le Creuset or Lodge which are both cast iron.

          Have you purchased Get Your Glow On yet honey? If not you will need to purchase it to get access to it. If you have please email hello@melissaambrosini.bitnamiapp.com and we will sort you out right away.

          Awesome, thanks Melissa! I will be buying some soon, and yes of course I would not touch conventional meat.

          Oh no I didn't realise I have to purchase it I will figure it out.

          Thanks again xx

      Hey does anyone know if there is custom restrictions surrounding shipping products from the iHerb.com site to Australia? I'd hate to have federal police knocking on my door and arresting me for trying to import prohibited substances into the country! When all I have in defence is that I wanted to eat healthy ice-cream

      Hi Melissa :)

      I am just a bit confused. Are bliss balls with nuts/dates/cacao not good to consume as snacks on an everyday basis?
      Also what kind of things do you eat for dinner? I have your 'munchies by Melissa' but I feel that Crosby and yourself are saying to stay away from nut based snacks, however you include those in your book?

      I am a vegan trying to ease back into (good quality) meats and am just unsure how to safely go about it? Please Help! x

      • Melissa
        May 27, 2015

        Hey Sarah,

        Awesome questions. I believe all food should be rotated and nothing should be consumed is large quantities on a daily basis. I know people who have given themselves a broccoli allergy from eating broccoli every single day. I also believe that if you have gut issues, such as leaky gut, I would stay away from nuts until you have healed your gut.

        I have a new ebook coming out (very soon) with loads of dinner recipes so keep an eye out honey.

        And in regards to introducing meats have you thoughts about bone broth yet? I was vegan and transitioned to meat with bone broth and it really helped me. Have you tried it?

        • sarah
          May 27, 2015

          Looking forward to the book so very much!
          No I haven't tried bone broth yet, I plan to give it a go this weekend though. How much did you start with?
          Thank you so much for your help I really appreciate it ! x

          May 27, 2015

          Hey Sarah,

          You can start with 1 cup for morning tea and 1 cup for afternoon tea. Start there and see how you feel.

          May 27, 2015

          also, would you recommend a particular type of meat? (chicken, beef etc.)
          And do you drink it straight or mix it in with something?

        • Melissa
          May 27, 2015

          Chicken, beef, lamb anything as long as it's grass fed and grass finished. That's very important.

          And regarding the broth you just drink it straight darling. Chicken broth is my fav.

          Let me know how you go.

      Such great information, thank you.

      My body thrives on hight fat/ no sugar too, and can definitely feel when its lacking them.. I've previously experienced all of which you have simply not eating enough fat.
      Anyway, I have some questions-

      Crosby mentioned having a balance of fats is importance for hormones which I never knew.. I found it very interesting to have plant based fats in morning and more grounding in evening. I would love to know more about what type of fats are great for when/what..

      Which kind of fats are blood building? Good for libido? Having a healthy menstrual cycle?

      Crosby also mentioned having grain in mornings can be bad, though, is you eat whole carbohydrates and FAT, will you be a fat burner/sugar burner?

      Isn't that amazing it takes 3 steps to turn on your brain compared to 26!
